Giving much-needed relief from the scorching April heat, Rain was reported from several parts of Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra on Sunday evening. Light rains, thunderstorms and lightning are expected on Monday as well, as per a warning issued by The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD).

As pre-monsoon showers are likely to hit central Maharashtra, areas like Thane, Palghar and Pune along with Marathwada and Vidarbha will experience light rains along with thunderstorms and lightning. The weather conditions are attributed to cyclonic circulation persisting over south of central Maharashtra, as the cyclone is passing from West Madhya Pradesh towards Karnataka, falling over parts of Maharashtra, reports IMD.

Due to extra moisture formation, light rains will be experienced in isolated parts of Maharashtra. Skymet Weather, a private weather forecasting agency, further stated that increase in intensity and spread of weather activities over Maharashtra, while many parts may receive light to moderate rain and thundershower activities. Strong winds, lightning strikes and hailstorm are also expected.
